Still can't figure it out

  1. dwc hydro, 4 weeks into flower

    8 ml/gal micro
    16 ml/gal bloom
    7 ml/gal calmag+

    distilled water, 5.9 pH, 73.5 F in the room, humidity is ok

    originally had issues with the purple stems and leaves slowly go yellow from the bottom of the plant up, with the yellow working its way to the outer of the leaf. realized because im using distilled water i have no minerals helping so i added calmag and it sort of seems like it helped a bit but i had to do some pruning and have cut off the dead/burned leaves. thought also my airstones were clogged so i put some more holes in em

    posted on another forum and few people said it may have been rootbound, which i don't understand as this is a hydro grow

  2. It's serious Phosphorus deficiency with a mild Nitrogen deficiency. Here's an example of another plant with P-def. If you turn the green of the damaged leaves in the pic yellow (from Nitrogen def), you get symptoms just like yours.

  3. Gave them some more food, took off any leaves that were falling off. Trimmed the roots also, plant seems to dank a lot more now and is slowly showing the green again. We'll see what happens in a week.

  5. it seem it will b ready soon is all 4 week's flower? well from what i c there is 8 week and prob sooner flower times then that ur bud's look decent plus that's a no N issue norm from what i c pulling them was smart 50 percent sick leave's are no good really anyway and will aid in pest/mold's prob got urself some kind bud there
     
  6. The pink and white hair's tell me full flower baby just my 2 cent's
     
  7. I wouldn't worry about N deficiency. Let it happen, the buds will taste much better if she's mildly N deficient than if you have a dark green plant. She'll steal all the N she needs from the fan leaves cuz she knows buds are of utmost importance. But yeah, you're gonna want P, it makes buds.
     
  8. Seriously contemplated chopping 1/3 of the roots because it seemed root bound so I did.

    This is what they look like as of today

  9. This deep into flowering? I would not have done that, especially to an already sick plant.
     

  10. Turned out better than expected. Got the lush green colour back and an amazing aroma! Looks like the tops are filling up quicker too now.

    Some hi-rez bud porn!
